 13) The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Wonderful book. Both more and less heartbreaking than I had expected.  I've been looking forward to reading this one for a long time, and I was not disappointed.  

I finished reading this book on July 3.

12) The Wilder Life by Wendy McClure

I've been reading this book for about 3 weeks.  Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series was a major influence on my youth and on my life. McClure spends about a year going on a pilgrimage to the many Ingalls and Wilder locales in the US, and along the way explains her own love for the series.  Recommended for grown-up Laura fans, but not necessarily for someone who still wants to be immersed in "Laura World."

 I finished this a week or so ago, just haven't posted yet.

#10) House of Many Ways, by Diana Wynne Jones

I'm glancing at lots of books right now, but not really committed to reading anything, probably for the first time this year.  Since I'm starting to write again, that's probably a fine thing.

9) Will Grayson, Will Grayson, by John Green and David Levithan

This is the kind of book that both inspires me to write and causes me to despair that I will never write something even remotely this wonderful.

How exciting! I'm now averaging slightly over two books per month!!

Obviously, I'm not keeping track in real-time. I'll try to fix that in the future.

#6) The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald

#7) Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

#8) XVI by Julia Karr

I really would like to write reviews of these soon, too. If wishes were horses....

#5) Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones. I should be reviewing this, but I have three chapters to read for an exam, so in deference to passing my class, no review. For now. Maybe later.

#4) "Forge", by Laurie Halse Anderson

Can I really be only at 4 for the year?  Yikes.

#3) "Monstrous Regiment" by Terry Pratchett (I actually finished this around Feb. 1 but forgot that I was posting titles to keep track.)
Full of surprises, including a surprisingly satisfying non-ending.

 #1 "The Telling" by Ursula LeGuin
